This adorable and huggable 2 year old boy’s only chance at life was with German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County. You see, poor Bobby was hit by a car and found himself at the local animal shelter. He needed a very expensive leg surgery. Because of his injuries, Bobby was kenneled in the medical ward away from the public, which left him without a chance for adoption.

Luckily for Bobby, the shelter staff was smitten with Bobby. Through all this trauma he still managed to give lots of kisses and nudges to the shelter staff. Having worked with GSROC before, the shelter pleaded for us to help this poor boy. Of course, we just had to make room for Bobby. How could we turn our backs on him when we were his only hope?

In a matter of days, Bobby was with a vet getting the much needed surgery he needed. We are happy to report that the surgery was a success. Within a few weeks his broken femur should be like new again.

Bobby is currently in a foster home where he is receiving much needed TLC as he recuperates from his surgery. Although we are still getting to know him, he appears to get along with dogs and humans of all ages and sizes, including even cats! His foster mom says she has received countless licks of “thanks” from Bobby. He seems to know that his future now looks bright!

Adoption Donation

  • Adult GSDs: $395
  • Purebred GSD Puppies: $495
  • Mixed GSD Puppies: $395
  • Special Senior-to-Senior Adoptions: $295
This donation is tax-deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog’s care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs, so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.

All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
